you can install update-notifier, but it was not included in default install
as it depends on gnome libraries whichs is against our stated goal. It could
be made to work w/o gnome Iguess with some effort but there are things of
higher priority to take care of now.

just use this list, there are still relatively few users I think to warrant
a new list. I hope people are not afraid to ask just because the list is
called devel :)

Again, it's looking really good!
